Re: Shakey's Commission Stash!

And the end of this exciting era: https://i.imgur.com/VRXmY17.jpg A spring flipper I handed over at the AWS being the last of the commissions off the line. Using a TGY306HV powering a spring latch design geared more for reliable demonstrating over sheer power. Intention now is to continue with a mor...

Re: Brushless motor recomendations

No idea, I'm a pretty stubborn builder when I find a component that just works. For ESC's that's always been the afro 12A as I like poking SimonK. However it hasn't really kept with the times and I am now fitting some Multistar 12A BLHeli ones to test.

Quanum 1806 (the purple one)

Great balance of performance and weight with a 3mm shaft for robustness.

Re: Controller stuffs

Wondering as well if the SG90 is ok to plug into the nano two. Sorry about the questions. I just want to be safe with not breaking it. The Nanotwo v3 outputs whatever your battery voltage is to the servo. If you are using a 2s LiPo a sg90 wouldn't live long. As a side note it wouldn't live long any...

Re: Controller stuffs

It can indeed! This page has a section on how to change the model/profile for the Devo. https://nutsandbots.co.uk/devo7e/ Then you just bind each bot to a separate profile. Unless you mean control multiple receivers all at once rather than one at a time, in which case put all the receivers into bind...

The foamboard face on manta ray. And the answer is to stop spinners from hitting anything solid. Which can stop them launching manta ray around.

I'm like to see the changes you make to the bot, making it your own!

Re: What counts as a magnetic weapon?

I believe that rule is mainly referring to what is essentially electrical attacks through induced currents, not just a regular permanent magnet. Though we don't use metal floors so they don't really appear as a traction aid.

Re: Team 1202 Build Diary

I completely disagree with Mark. While there are fancier filaments ABS is still a great material for ants, all my ants sit in ABS chassis and hold up to combat very well. As with most 3d printing you want to avoid the prints being hit directly anyway with something like sheet polycarb armour but ABS...

Re: Increasing numbers

I prefer option 2, hell would make my AWS's easier. I think paired with an expansion to the clusters walkers for last slot and a move to 2 rollers + 1 Else top actually make it effective and really bring variety. I get that this kinda hits a lot of 3 bit teams hard though. 5) I accept I am biased on...
